I'm curious...
« on: August 29, 2016, 03:25:56 PM »
The slogan at the top of the forums says "SMASHING THROUGH THE LIES SINCE 2014" now the 2014 is obvious but I am curious about the background behind the preceding statement.  Is there something specific behind that?

You had to have been there.... thumb1 

Someone with more etiquette and couth might explain it, like RM, P32 or LC.....but I have neither on that subject. Sorry :)

Also bring into play my foul mouthed bi-polar half hick-hillbilly retard alter ego......a guy you might hear about, named Jimmy, it's not me, it the other guy in here... It's rough dealing with him, especially when he commandeers the keyboard :o     RM's tighty whitys usually draw up, real tight  :o   chuckles1
I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse......

I'll take a politically correct stab at it....lol

For many years, there was another forum that was considered the authority on SKS information. The major collectors and players were there. Over the years, much knowledge about these guns was "guessed", since the respective countries of manufacture really aren't offering us accurate info.

Over time, these guesses and speculation became "law" of information concerning the SKS. But as time went on, people started challenging this info, wanting to see facts or data it was based off. Those people couldn't get answers (because there was no factual data), so they started collecting data and looking at the history of the SKS from outside the box....with a new perspective based on facts and actual guns.

Eventually, the old salts on the other forum started getting offended by real world information shooting holes in their guessed "law", and they started pushing out those members. Those members created this site. A site where information is based off of fact, and when something is questioned we re-evaluate it instead of censoring and banning people who don't agree with us, like they do at the other board.

So that should give you a quick summary :)

I "knew" there had to be a story behind it.  I am actually a member of the forum of which I think you speak.  I originally joined back in 2011 when I got my SKS then well, life happens, and I didn't post again until a short while ago so I missed all of that it seems.  Glad I did I guess.  I get it though...
